Fiat Chrysler issues recall for headrests

Nearly 470,000 vehicles worldwide are being recalled by Fiat Chrysler to fix problems related to headrests that can malfunction in a rear collision.

Almost 25,000 older model vehicles in Canada are included in the notice.

After consumer complaints were made to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the company said it found a component of certain vehicles may degrade over time. As a result, the headrests may be stopped from moving forward in a rear crash and protect occupants in the front row from whiplash injuries.

Subject to the recall are some 2012 Jeep Liberty SUVs and 2012-13 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger midsize cars. Fiat Chrysler said they will notify affected customers in November.

The company is unaware of any injuries due to the problem.
